Edmund White recommends
thumb
All the World Beside (2024)
Garrard Conley
"Teaches us that in Puritan America the scarlet letter was not A for adultery but H for homosexuality and that the only romance with God is tense and tragic."
thumb
The Future Future (2023)
Adam Thirlwell
"A landmark-precisely because it's so deeply embedded in our history and is so unthinkably original."
thumb
God's Children Are Little Broken Things (2022)
Arinze Ifeakandu
"These are heartbreaking stories of love and loss, as granular and nourishing as the harmattan, the cold winter wind that blows out of the Sahara. Ifeakandu is a writer of lyricism and profundity at the beginning of a brilliant career."
